Manchester United will be looking to put one foot in the next phase when they take on Saint-Etienne in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie at Old Trafford this evening.

Jose Mourinho has decided to give first choice goalkeeper David De Gea a rest with Sergio Romero starting in goal while he’s stuck to his promise of playing the same back four that played against Watford.

That means Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Daley Blind make up the defence with Marouane Fellaini joining Ander Herrera in midfield.

Anthony Martial keeps his place in attack along with Juan Mata while Paul Pogba moves in to a move advanced role behind lead striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Henrikh Mkhitaryan appears to have been rested as he’s not named in the squad.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Man Utd

Romero, Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Pogba, Martial, Ibrahimovic

Subs: De Gea, Darmian, Rojo, Schweinsteiger, Lingard, Young, Rashford

Saint-Etienne
